Renowned photographer Roger Holman has been capturing images of his native Dorset for over fifty years. In this sumptuous new book he journeys throughout this renowned landscape, from its unique coast – much of which is now a World Heritage Site – to the heathlands so memorably evoked by Thomas Hardy, the great Vales of Blackmoor and Marshwood and the timeless pastoral valleys of the Stour and the Frome.

Ancient churches, picturesque watermills, romantic castles and scenic villages figure alongside great natural features like Golden Cap and Melbury Hill in this gorgeous celebration of Dorset in over 140 full colour images from the incomparable camera of Roger Holman.

Roger Holman was born in 1932 near Wimborne, not far from where he lives today, and educated at the Queen Elizabeth Grammar School. On leaving he joined the family firm, which he continued to run – apart from time spent in the RAF on National Service – until he handed it over to two of his sons. He discovered photography in his teens and, having a great love of the countryside, finds landscape photography the most rewarding. Roger is the author of Images of the Dorset Coast, Images of Dorset Country and is co-author of Dorset’s Most Beautiful Buildings.
